Have you seen this error? I hope you don't: It means that your current setup is broken. Nasty.

CAUSES: It usually happens when you boot Windows 10 Phone while the WOA's BOOT partition is of type "ESP" (EFI System Partition).

It shouldn't happen if you use WOA Installer, because it handles the transitions correctly for you, but there's a chance that you get this error.

When this happens, the only satisfactory way to fix it I've found is to flash the stock FFU. You can do it using WPInternals or Windows Device Recovery Tool.

If you know another way to overcome this error, please tell us!
